John Davison

I’m a local boy, born and raised and the second youngest of 4 kids. I love the outdoors, and much like Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown, if I could, I would spend the rest of my life on a beach with my toes in the sand. I enjoy being around positive people that dream big. Nature and animals are an important part of who I am, in fact, I have many rescue cats. In my spare time, I like to work out using non-traditional weight lifting techniques. Friends will call me a health nut. Country music is an essential part of my life as the Hawk has been very good to me since 1986. I’ve always said I have the most loyal listeners in the world. It’s thanks to my listening family that I received the Binghamton Broadcaster’s “Working Broadcaster of the Year” honor.

First Look at Dan+Shay’s ‘What You Do To Me’ [VIDEO]

The HAWK predicted that Dan + Shay would explode with their tune, '19 You + Me,' and sure enough, it has been very big for Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney.  It's a song of innocence, that I think everyone can relate to, taking you back to a simpler time in ones' life.
